Cornish Wreckers

Cornish Wreckers

Tony Millman on navigational instruments, Michael Plater on psychiatric wigs and powders and Andrea Millman on plaint and false hopes bring you you tales from the tough Victorian-era streets of East-End London, tales from the Cornish coast and of its ruthless 19th Century pirates, tales of the ghosts and lights that bewitched the sailors travelling on board seafaring vessels made of wood and hemp, and songs about bedeviled goats that tempts the flesh of the tender and the innocent.
